We stayed in this place for one night and I can say it's the worst hotel I've been to in Malaysia. The rooms are spacious but they smell horrible, the beds are very bad, our shower didn't work (and the reception closes just after we arrived), no towels, no toilet paper, dirty bathroom and the worst of all: bed bugs!

We rocked up here at about 7pm to find the place completely locked up. We looked around for another budget option but really struggled, getting quoted 80 RM plus. Finally we managed to squeeze into a room with a German couple we met and hit up Ping the next morning. We got a small fan only room (fan was rubbish)... More

Unfortunately I couln't get into the Triple 8 guest house opposite the market so this was the second choice. No 25 Ringit rooms available so had to pay 38 and then move the next day to the cheaper room which I fully understand and they were very pleasant about the whole thing. The report in Lonely/Lazy Planet is completely wrong... More

I paid 40 ringgit for v large fan room ( could have slept 3 as extra bed), and it was fine. Clean sheets, separate bathroom (fine). A towel would have been nice, as would a smile from the dour faced man in ping anchorage agency. You can't have everything! Restaurant on roof is simple but good- lovely girl who works... More

The most terrible Guesthouse I've stayed in my 20 days trip in Malaysia! No one cleaned the room even I asked twice. What I needed was to change the sheet others slept before!They only have a great-look travel agency. They only care about that. This inn is only attachment. You cannot find any staff after they close. No wifi no... More

The rooms are spacious and fairly clean if rather bland, but at 35RM they are pretty good value. I walked around several budget hotels in KT all of which were over-priced until i decided to come to this location. Primarily for backpackers the rooms are shared toilets. This was fairly clean but the showers were little more than a trickle... More

The bad vibe started when we asked for a room and we were quoted 50RM, once we had seen it, the price went up to 60RM and when we were paying the price went up to 65RM. When we said that we didn't want to pay 65RM if we had agreed to 60RM, the person was very offended and basically... More

Very simple room with clean share bathroom, the condition in room are so so, just a place to save budget and sleep, location is good, walking distance to local bus stand and city attractions. My conclusion is the only reason to stay in this guesthouse is just about the value, not cleanliness.

We stopped over in Kuala Terengganu for two nights on our way up to Kota Bharu. Kuala Terengganu is basically not really backpacker friendly. We arrived at 8:00 pm and checked some hostels from the guide, but there prices were ridiculous, so we finally ended in the Ping Anchorage. We asked for a double bedroom and got one with a... More

This place was a nightmare. We stayed one night on the way to Perhentian - that was ok, just your regular bad cheap hotel. We had booked but there was no record of us. The door to the place got jammed shut and we couldn't get in after going out for dinner. Oh, trust the omens fair traveler, trust the... More
